“Without having done the apprenticeship I would never have been able to achieve so much by the age of 21. Having the hands on experience really helped me progress into a new role and I am so grateful for the staff at Marios Schwab and Fashion Enter for the opportunity and for being so supportive. I cannot recommend apprenticeships enough, as pursuing this rather than University was the best decision I ever made!”
